Cinéma sous les étoiles is an outdoor social and political documentary film festival, entirely free of charge and open to all. This major event takes place every year in many parks and outdoor venues throughout Montreal and surrounding areas. The public can thus discover free of charge quality works on local and international current events in the heart of their neighbourhood.

HI Canada has decided to join this initiative to present documentaries on issues related to its mission to Quebec and Montreal audiences. For this 2019 edition, HI will co-present:

HI calls on governments against bombing in civilian areas

On the eve of the Canadian federal election, HI is calling on the leaders and leaders of the main parties to mobilize against the bombing of civilian areas. Elsewhere in the world, HI invites the public to call on its members of parliament in Germany, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. By calling on your MPs, let us exert our full weight on governments to put an end to the bombing of civilians in populated areas. 90 MPs (from Belgium, France, Switzerland…) have already expressed their support for our campaign.
